  1. Seems familiar. Were these the shoes advertised in Scoot magazine?

      I know scooterists are trendy and while some of their shoes may look similar, they are most likely imitations. I think they have a store near you

  2. I've never heard of these shoes before, but I think it is official, I am too much of a tomboy for fancy footwear. Either that or I just have no fashion sense.

      You have more fashion sense than most but I've never thought of you as a tomboy. They have a store in Portland and Seattle so you could check them out next time you are close. You never know, he has been making quality shoes for decades

  3. Nothing to say. Does that still qualify as a comment?

      WHAT ? No smart remark. Run out of words ? Maybe we could get John Fluevog to make motorcycle boots

    2. Yep completely out of words. And I NEVER have any "smart" remarks....

      sometimes, you just gotta wear shoes. Of course with summer coming that would only be for work, or whilst riding. Other than that the "open air" feel is much better

      I notice there is a Fluevog store in Tampa. If that's too far then just order on-line. I don't know which P0rn is best. I used to collect pens, cameras and watches but I cured myself.

  6. Oh my god, I saw at least 10 pairs in your photo that I would love to own! I am a shoe diva! I used to work in the shoe business in my 20's and had an addiction. Oh how I love soft leather shoes in beautiful styles and textures and colours. Oh my!

      You have a store in Victoria who carries FLuevogs = Footloose. Somehow I just knew you were a shoe diva. I had a friend who used to work in a shoe department (on commission). I used to have a camera addiction but I'm nearly cured now

  7. Never heard of him. Shoes are kind of cool though. I'm not into heels these days, but some of those colorful flats might be nice. Looking forward to the post. Are you perhaps getting some colorful fancy new riding boots? :)

      I know that walking on heels isn't good for your posture, but it looks so seductive . . . Did you realize that heels were first worn by Gentlemen in the 18th century

  8. That's a lot of talk about shoes ... I didn't see any pink one's so I'm curious where you're heading on this one?

      I have a collection of sandals, and only buy shoes for work and I ditch them as soon as I can. I only have one pink croc but a few pink shoelaces

  9. So now I know what a Fluevog is. LOL. How cool!

    I'm with Trobairitz... no fancy shoes for me. I opt for comfort/function over fashion all the time.

      I like comfort and function too, but that generally means sandals for me. I may have one pair of dress shoes but they aren't comfortable and I usually can't wait to get out of them
